The Lake District ‘Mummy house’ in San Francisco finally sells.
If you don’t live near the Bay area, you probably don’t know about this, but back in April, the mummified body of a woman was found in her Lake District house. The house was also discovered to be infested with rats, black widows, mold, and bottles of urine. The house was cleaned up and went up for sale in June.
The two-bedroom, two-bathroom house was estimated to be worth 2.5 million with a renovation, but most people couldn’t really understand that given the state of the property.
The house has recently sold for $1.56 million, which is over $500,000 more than it’s initial minimum bid price of $928,000.
The moral of the story is, the mummy house is a house-flipper’s dream. If the developers do this correctly, they will have a pretty valuable property on their hands.[ via ]
